WHAT: Silver Comet/Chief Ladiga trail ride from Smyrna, GA to Anniston, AL
and return. Approx. 100 miles each way.

WHEN: Saturday, June 3rd (Smyrna to Anniston) and Sunday, June 4th (Anniston to
Smyrna) Read about the Silver Comet and Chief Ladiga Rail Trails Here: http://www.silvercometga.com/

The nearly flat Silver Comet/Chief Ladiga rail trail is one of the longest
and best known rail trails in the country. The trails are paved their entire
length. The plan is to ride the entire trail in one day from Smyrna to
Anniston, stay overnight in Anniston, and return to Smyrna the following
day. Anniston hotel is TBD. Riders will be responsible for their own
transportation to/from Smyrna and hotel reservation in Anniston. An option
to stay in a Smyrna Friday night near the trail entrance to insure an early
start is a possibility. Note: Parking cars overnight at the trail entrance
is not permitted. A secure parking location is being investigated. To
minimize the amount of gear to be carried by riders the following plan is

1–Ship a box to the Anniston hotel with the following items: street clothes
and shoes for off the bike evening of June 3rd; necessary toilet articles; a
clean set of bike clothes (shorts, jersey, socks) for June 4th; a plastic bag
large enough to hold your dirty (June 3rd) cycling clothes; a roll of tape
(for sealing the box); snacks, GU, powders, etc for the return ride.
2–When shipping the box ask the shipper to prepare a return shipping label
and pre-pay to have the box shipped back to you in Greenville. Include the
return label in your box.
3–Call the hotel in Anniston and advise them of the box being shipped and
to hold for your arrival June 3rd.
4–On Sunday, June 4th, repack the box with your street clothes and dirty bike
clothes, seal the box and use the return label. Give the box to the hotel
desk for shipper pickup.
